Mountain Toilets Now Closed for the Season

Mountain Toilets have been flown off Mt. Baker for the remainder of the 2011 season. Climbers are now responsible for collecting and packing out their human waste using Blue Bags or Wag Bags, which can be acquired at the Sedro Woolley or Glacier public service centers.

New snow was recieved on the mountain above 5,000 ft. over the past week and although climbing conditions are quite good for this period of the season, groups should anticipate the need for route finding and thorough crevasse evaluation. Enjoy the remainder of a great season, be safe and happy climbing!
